MICHIGAN - Grand Traverse County Sheriff Sales

Sheriff Auctions


Foreclosure sale information.


Grand Traverse County Sheriff Foreclosure Sales are conducted on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. on the third floor of the historical court house located at 328 Washington Street, Traverse City, MI 49684. Sales that fall on the date of a holiday will be adjourned to the next sale date scheduled for the month. Properties to be sold at auction by the Sheriff's Office are generally advertised in the Traverse City Record Eagle.

Sales of property are “open-type” auction sales with the plaintiff normally submitting an opening bid. Anyone present can enter a 3rd party bid on the property being auctioned. In order to successfully obtain the highest bid, you must enter a bid that is at least $1.00 more than the plaintiffs or anyone who has placed a bid before you. Bids will be accepted for a period of time up to one hour after the auction has started. The auctioneer reserves the right to extend the auction in the event competing bids are entered on a property.
